Life can be funny sometimes. I work as an IT consultant, part of the time at least, and can be over-dependent on my laptop. Well as the lease on my current machine was running out this week I was wondering whether I should upgrade or pocket the cash and keep this another year. So I started looking around at the latest gadgets thinking how nice it would be to have, though I'm far from materialistic normally, and just before I post off the last payment my laptop today (of all days!!) decided to go faulty on me. I was mid-project on a website for a client so after the initial panic that my data was safe have been forced to order a speedy replacement, - fingers crossed before this weekend. So I'm typing this through a weird checkerboard screen effect at the moment as the graphics no longer work. Apologies for any typos but I can barely see what I'm typing! Anyways, trying to be philosophical about it - maybe the universe wants me to get outdoors and walk the dog some more - I'm sure its good for me but I can feel the withdrawal syptoms of my IT addiction already ;) It does remind me though - be careful what you wish for, co-creators, as you may get it in unexpected ways!!
